Charlie Chaplin's The Kid in 1080p. This is not the best quality it could probably be and looks unrestored, but it seems to be the best available copy I've come across, likely due to a high resolution scan.

Subject: One of Chaplin's Masterpiece But 1 Scene Distrubs Me
I give 'The Kid' the highest rating and there is little I can add to critiques of this masterpiece, but the scene where the 'Little Tramp' is sitting on the curb holding the baby and thinks about putting him down the sewer drain always upsets me.
This is a copyrighted version from the 1970's. During the 70's Mr.Chaplin wrote all new scores to all his films and re-released them under new copyrights.
It should be noted that movies of the 1920's were of the same high picture quality of today's films. To suggest silent era films were of a poor "mpeg1" quality is completely incorrect and uninformed. Just because most silent era films have comedown to us scratched, faded, suffered cellulose breakdown, does not mean they were originally of poor quality or that all existing prints from that era must have been restored to look good. Many silent era film prints have been very well preserved to the point they need no restoration. The film 'The Flapper' is one such film.
As for being and "enhanced" version or in 1080i, anyone can take any film here on Archive, download it, and convert it to any picture ratio, format, or resolution.

Subject: If one claims this version, is plagiarism copyrightable?
What a wonderful movie, I did see it the 1st time over 40 years ago and it is timeless.
Great upload for posterity but....
1st part missing : about 35 seconds of the beginning of [The Man] @ TC 02:18.
2nd instance : a whole scene of the wedding exit about a minute @ TC 03:00 is missing.
3rd instance another whole scene missing about 1:22 , the mother thought of her child while interacting with a child and his nanny @TC 09:25
4th A whole series of scenes about the father/painter and her meeting him again also missing text [ The world welcomes fame.] and [The man-now a painter of great prominence.] and [Fate.] and ["How may I atone for the suffering I've -"] and ["It's too late now, unless the child-"] also images of a book labeled: "The Past "and opened at a page titeled: "Regrets", duration of omission about 03:11 @TC 23:25.
5th And to top it all the speed of the whole motion-picture is about 17% too fast.
Subject: Excellent Print - Great Story
A Chaplin classic! Just a great, heart-warming story that has you smiling 90% of the time.
How did you get a copy that warranted conversion to 1080p? Most movies of that time weren't even Mpeg1 quality. This must have undergone some kind of remastering that I'm betting is under copyright.

Subject: derived work?
I'm wondering about copyright with this highly enhanced film. Regardless, the last scenes (approximately 10 minutes) are missing in all versions, as far as I can tell. Had to go back to the older copy (no sound) to see the ending.
